# class notes
## Pre-class
- Readings
- [Rose_Ch7](./Rose_Ch7-When-Businesses-Commit-to-Individuality.pdf)
- [Rose_ch8](./Rose_Ch8-Replacing-the-Average.pdf)
- group work will be in your major?
- Using blackboard slide
- Print and submit assignments
## questions
- Ask about the:
- RIN:
- audience: everyone
- Doesn't require sources
- how you got interested in your research topic, not your major (so you'll have to re-write some stuff)
- Text Analysis
- choose a source on the bib and analyze it in depth
- pick the most valuable source
- Oral
- audience: everyone
- Lit Review:
- The final assignment
- 6-8 sources summarizing and __synthesizing__ a topic
- ID what has and hasn't been done in the subject
- audience: People in your field
- Annotated Bib
- Just a references list with an evaluation of each source.
- Discipline Awareness project
- investigate your field and how to do research in your field
- DAP and Text analysis are in parallel
- Everything can be revised until June 20
- No final
- all the assignments build up
## Real class
- We have
- Default topic is education
- goals: how to write in your field
- Type assignments and email them
- Put your rough draft in the discussion board
## response
- headings aren't descriptive or the sections are too small to warrent a heading
- change intro (less detail)
- describe topic better (don't say "in this paper I'll..." make it flow)

# Writing in Information Technology
## prompt
__Write a little about your experience with research and writing in your major.__ What kinds of research and writing have you done in your major? (Have you taken/are you currently taking a research methods or writing-intensive class? Have you done/are you doing an undergraduate research project or capstone project? Have you had an internship, clinical experience, or other work experience related to your major?) What interests you or frustrates you most about research/writing in your major? How could you use the assignments in this class to reflect and build on past/ongoing projects? (Is there a possibility that you could take advantage of the dual submission option?) How familiar are you with resources in your major and in your department? If you have recently declared or changed your major, feel free to write about your experience with research and writing in more general terms. What kinds of college writing assignments have you found most interesting or most difficult?
## writing experience
### Sub-prompt
What kinds of research and writing have you done in your major? (Have you taken/are you currently taking a research methods or writing-intensive class? Have you done/are you doing an undergraduate research project or capstone project? Have you had an internship, clinical experience, or other work experience related to your major?)
### Response
My writing experience in the information technology major includes:
- Writing a 15 page research paper in an Operating systems class
- Writing a 10 page analysis of a project in my project management class
- I've had an internship related to Information technology where I wrote Java, C++, and Python code to develop a phone tracking system.
## Interests/Frustrations with Writing in IT
### Sub-prompt
What interests you or frustrates you most about research/writing in your major?
### Response
#### Interests
Writing research papers in information technology brings a unique perspective. The information technology major is mostly geared toward teaching skills related to information technology which includes writing papers, but it's not very common. In highschool I took an AP English which permanently shaped the way I write and think. Applying this experience to information technology often feels alien because the prompts in AP English were opinion based and broad, while the prompts in information technology are the exact opposite.
#### Frustrations
The alien perspective discussed above is a double edged sword. I can't write as quickly and fluidly as I can when I'm expressing a broad opinion.
## Future use of writing experience from 302
### Sub-prompt
How could you use the assignments in this class to reflect and build on past/ongoing projects? (Is there a possibility that you could take advantage of the dual submission option?)
## Response
I hope to use the assignments in this class to document my experience and research at my internship this summer. I'm taking another class this summer which I believe is writing intensive. I don't intend on using dual submission because I doubt I can use my internship experience to write an assignment for the other writing intensive class. Also, my other class is a B session class so I'm not entirely sure what the assignments are in the class yet. I may contact you next week regarding dual submission if I have to write a paper in the other class.
## Databases experience
### Sub-prompt
How familiar are you with resources in your major and in your department?
### Response
In my Operating Systems paper I scheduled an appointment with a librarian who introduced me to many of the databases we use in the major. Still, the best tool is Google and Google Scholar. I usually find resources that are copyrighted on Google and Google Scholar, which I then get for free through https://library.gmu.edu/
## Opinion
### Sub-prompt
What kinds of college writing assignments have you found most interesting or most difficult?
### Response
I find longer papers harder and therefore more instructive because staying on point becomes more difficult as the size of the paper increases. These long papers make me appreciate authors more.

# Why you choose Information Technology?
## prompt
__Write a little about how and why and you chose your major.__ When did you choose or declare your major? How far along are you? What first drew you to this major? What do you like best about it? What do you like least about it? Do you think that your decision was shaped more by your formal education or by experiences outside the classroom, including any attempts you made to educate yourself? What questions do you hope to answer through your studies in this field? What would you like to learn more about? In what ways are your goals and interests similar to those of other students you know with your major? In what ways are they different?
## declare
### sub-prompt
When did you choose or declare your major? What first drew you to this major? What do you like best about it?
### responses
I choose to declare my major after taking a computer science class on a whim and got hooked. I knew I didn't want to do the math because I've been traumatized by evil math teachers in the past so I choose Information Technology instead of Computer Science.
## autodidect
### sub-prompt
Do you think that your decision was shaped more by your formal education or by experiences outside the classroom, including any attempts you made to educate yourself?
### response
My decision was shaped by my experiences in the classroom, but I wouldn't have had those experiences if I stuck to the path that was laid out for me by the education system. As with anything, if you choose to be in a classroom, you'll enjoy it, but if you're forced to be in the class, you'll hate it.
## final essay
### sub-prompt
What questions do you hope to answer through your studies in this field? What would you like to learn more about? In what ways are your goals and interests similar to those of other students you know with your major? In what ways are they different?
### response
As with any other engineering(ish) major, I hope to maximize efficiency thereby saving the world.

# Rose Response
## prompt
__Finally, write a little about your response to today’s readings by Todd Rose.__ How have “averagerian” ideas affected your own education, work, or life experiences?
## Response
Rose proposes diversity as the solution to averagerian ideals. I've personally seen how diversity can provide benefits to organizations. Everyone is an expert at something, organizations that ignore these abilities will be out competed by organizations that don't.
